Example text

RFT will be described more thoroughly in chapter 4. Language and cognition become problematic when individuals become fused with their thoughts in ways that increase experiential avoidance, lead them to follow futile change agendas, and sap vitality. ACT, a clinical application built on basic RFT research, assumes that clinical change occurs when the context of behavior changes toward successful working rather than when the form of behavior changes toward an established model. Thus, rather than emphasizing the form of behavior, the functions and contexts of psychological events are explored.

However, they observed that other environmental events, such as meat powder or a loud noise, respectively, functioned as an unconditioned stimulus (UCS) that did elicit reflexive salivation or a startle-and-cry response, which are unconditioned responses (UCR). When the NS of a bell or a white rat are paired with a UCS in a temporally contiguous fashion (close in time), the NS can become a conditioned stimulus (CS) as its presentation will elicit the ­conditioned response (CR). In other words, experiencing the NS (bell/white rat) paired with the UCS (meat powder/loud noise), can eventually lead to the bell or white rat having conditioned stimulus (CS) properties, and the CR (salivation/crying) will occur in the ­presence of the CS (bell/white rat), even if the UCS (meat powder/loud noise) is absent.

This “correction of misconceptions” makes up the bulk of the interventions from the cognitive revolution. Whether the client’s negative thoughts are verbally disputed or reality tested experientially, the main idea is to replace the faulty or irrational cognition with an alternate cognition that works better. In the cognitive therapy approach of Beck and others, the therapist describes how thinking influences feeling, and holds that if a person has certain cognitive distortions (such as inaccurate beliefs about the self, others, or the world), he is quite likely to feel negative emotions.
